mitt romney among likely voters but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> we're going to keep going up until the very end, keep making calls and doing doors until the polls close. >> you're out there. i'm going to be out there more. >> ted rowlands joins us now from racine, wisconsin. how is the race looking there? >> reporter: we mentioned a poll by marquette university that had the president up eight points, a cnn poll released after that has the lead a little bit more narrow, within the margin of error. both sides agree that this is a -- an election that could go either way. the state of wisconsin could go either way and the difference will be who can get their base out to vote. >> well, they both are certainly trying hard to do that. ted rowlands thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet.
to tighten it. they both made a gamble. but the romney campaign made a gamble that enough women cared about the economy and economic issues more than or at least as much as -- >> in the debates, obama related women's issues to family and economic issues. he didn't isolate it that way and, of course, the big elephant in the room is that romney showed up on october the 3rd like an alien ripped off his mask and said, i'm brand new now. >> but we liked him. we liked him. isn't that the point? we liked him better. >> it was like -- he has evolutionary ideology. >> you know, andrew, at this point in the campaign, all that matters is who has the last-minute enthusiasm. i don't know about the word momentum. i think that comes fretted with meaning. i think enthusiasm. you can't argue that the republicans who have gotten a little depressed were enthused. after that debate. the president won the last two. romney won the first one and romney won all three. it's a distraction for both candidates. to aukt -- talk about the joys of bipartisan ship. >> it's a fundamental issue. when i become president, we

the presidential campaigns. both vice president joe biden and governor romney have canceled events scheduled in virginia beach. >>> we have live coverage across the east coast for you. the weather channel's julie martin is live in north carolina. nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams are in delaware. we begin with nbc meteorologist dylan dryer. dylan, we had this new advisory released just about an hour ago. what's the news in it? >> the news is there haven't been too many changes. it is still a hurricane one category at this time. but we are just noticing the track budges ever so slightly with the newer updates. now instead of a direct hit right near atlantic city, new jersey, instead now it is down into delaware. look at the watches and warnings all across the eastern seaboard. obviously most out over the water but included in that northeastern south carolina, the east coast of north carolina, and eventually those will be extended up into virginia and new jersey as well. so winds are at 75 miles per hour, but notice the path of the storm still moving north-northeast at no
surprise. well, the storm causing both the president and mitt romney cancel several campaign visits. the president was supposed to rally with former president bill clinton in florida. that's not happening. president obama, he arrived back in d.c. got off air force one. you can see the pictures there. quickly got into the motorcade. normally he is flown in a rain chopper from the joint andrews base in maryland, but weather forcing a road trip back to the white house. that often happens when the weather is pretty bad. they don't want to take any security risks or chance there's. the president scheduled to make remarks about hurricane sandy. that is happening at about 20 minutes or so, 12:45 eastern to be exact, so keep it right here because we're obviously going to dip into that. going to carry his speech live, the briefing. he will talk, obviously, about what the white house and the administration is doing, the number of phone calls, conference calls that he has been making throughout the morning and throughout the weekend preparing for hurricane sandy. of course, in the midst of all

obama and mitt romney are competing for votes. they spent part of their time in ohio. both candidates are hoping 11th hour stops will change the way voters will go. and that could make or break the bid for the white house. it takes 270 electoral votes to win it all. experts suggest both candidates are trying to increase their chances of winning on tuesday. >> if the president wins florida, the election is over. ohio, in many respects, is the pivotal state. can romney find a path towards the presidency without ohio? and i would say that with wisconsin in play and that being a home state advantage for ryan, that wisconsin gives an alternative. >> and both campaigns are expected to cris cross one another this weekend in swing states like new hampshire, iowa and virginia. >>> voters turned out on the final day of early voting. 90,000 voters cast their ballots. numbers have been huge eve within the disruption of hurricane sandy. >> samantha burrell wasn't expecting to be met with cheers at her voting location on friday. but that's exactly what she got. she's a proud first time voter and an

to wisconsin, colorado and nevada. mitt romney will be campaigning in virginia. george, you can expect both of them to be campaigning virtually nonstop between now and tuesday. >> no question about it. they're going to be focusing on the white battleground states and the pink in north carolina, over the next several days. we want to give you a sense of each side's strategy. what the obama campaign is trying to do is build a firewall in these three big, midwestern states. iowa, wisconsin, and ohio. he gets to 271 electoral votes. and if mitt romney wins all of the other battlegrounds right there, he'll come up a little bit short, which may explain, jon, one of the reasons the romney campaign is trying to put new efforts into minnesota and pennsylvania and michigan, where they have been behind so far. but if they're able to pick off any one of those three states, that's enough to put him over the top. and one of the things we're seeing, you talk about the travel in the last few days. these battleground states, jon, are also completely inundated by ads. we got some fun -- fun for us, but not s
of unity, both from mitt romney and the president, appealing to that sense of unity, no doubt prompted as you point out at least in part to the east coast disaster. do you expect between now and tuesday they'll remove the gloves again? >> reporter: i think the gloves will be removed, particularly because we're seeinging t inthe unprecedented impact of outside money. we already saw one flyer in virginia, associated with apparently americans for tax reform, that tried to politicize the storm. so the outside groups and the outside money, you're going to see an uptick in dirty tricks in part because it is dirty money that is flowing through the election system. the candidates may try to stay out of the fray, but the outside groups will be more than willing to take off the gloves and fight hard because this is a war of attrition now, this fight is so close that it comes down to every vote. it is a game of inches. >> with the close fight, it has been days since we have looked at polls. so in the name of getting our bearings here, we have a poll today, a three-swing state, this is in new york
is less than a week away. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our efforts this morning. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all the trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. the storm put romney in a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts -- >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there's not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate when asked if some of fema's responsibilities should be turned over to the states. >> absolutely. any time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the sta
was the story of the week. there was so much media attention devoted to the storm. how did both candidates really get taken off their message? how did that impact the overall campaign, do you think? >> one thing it did, it just freezes things in place and took away the momentum from mitt romney. he essentially had to go down for several days in the middle of the final week of the campaign. that's bad news if you're the challenger, and for president obama, it gave him a chance to do his day job, and that day job happens to be being the president, so he was able to appear in the disaster zone, able to marshal the resources and show he was in control, have a commander in chief moment while mitt romney was struggling how to be a candidate in a time of a national catastrophe. >> and good favorability marks coming out after the storm for the president. >> indeed. we had almost eight in ten people saw the president's reaction to the storm favorably. those are astoundingly positive numbers, and you even had republicans, including the prominent republican chris christie, praising him for his effort
the same way. >> reporter: mitt romney picked up the endorsements of two iowa newspapers that supported obama last time, one that hasn't supported a republican since richard nixon. with the storm coming and the race so tight, both campaigns are trying to bank as many votes as possible in states with early voting. the superstorm storm has not stopped this campaign. mitt romney will be campaigning in three states on monday, and the president will be on the trail as well, campaigning in florida. jonathan karl, abc news, marion, ohio. >> you have to believe this is a distraction neither campaign wanted. sandy wreaking havoc in all kind of ways. we'll be back, everybody. stay with us. . we will be back, everybody. stay with us. 3q get irresistibly clean and fresh carpets in your home with resolve deep clean powder. the moist powder removes three times more dirt than vacuuming alone while neutralizing odors for a clean you can see, smell and really enjoy. don't just vacuum clean. resolve clean. >>> those picturill >>> those pictures will only get worse. hurricane sandy is more powerful than t
